The Importance Of Business Signage

As you will discover from this presentation a number of surveys and studies have shown that your business signage can be a major factor in the customers' decision making.

Sneaking Out at Night to Correct Punctuation

Sneaking Out at Night to Correct Punctuation

A self-declared “grammar vigilante” is spending his nights prowling the streets of Bristol and correcting the punctuation on business signs. 

Among the mystery man's targets have been signs reading “Vicenzo and Son Gentlemens Hairstylists”, “Herberts the Bakery” and a greengrocer display advertising “potato’s”.

The vigilante, who goes out late at night wearing a black coat and hat, has been correcting the city's erroneous punctuation for more than 10 years.

Walk into Spin350 Creative’s office and you’ll find part graphic design shop, part sign museum.
Metro Sign and Awning's insight:

Every sign tells a story, and this local sign collector's office has a lot of stories to tell. We love the original lollipop "T" sign - the ones we make today are not nearly so heavy!
